Member Group conventions

Member Group Conventions are organised by the Membership Board Best Practice Committee.


To enable the Officers and Directors of the Institute to consult on and seek support on changes that will affect the Institute and its Member Groups. 

To facilitate the sharing of best practice and to give groups a forum for debating issues with representatives of the wider BCS. 

To enable representatives of Member Groups to raise issues formally with the Officers and Directors of the Institute.


Two committee members from each Member Group are invited. One of the representatives (to be determined by the Member Group) is entitled to vote if there is a ballot.

Updating the rules

When the rules are revised to include significant changes there will be an open consultation process and they will also be presented for debate at Member Group Conventions.
